Time to Move On

It's time for me to move on to new challenges.

I joined Sun over 20 years ago; since then I've worked on many projects, enjoyed Sun's culture and had a blast during the GlassFish years. The interregnum between the IBM rumor, the Oracle announcement and the Change in Control was way too long, but by February we started integrating the team and the products into Oracle.

In the last 9 months we have announced the GlassFish roadmap, released GlassFish 3.0.1, multiple GlassFish Commercial Patches and multiple 3.1 milestones, moved the GlassFish wiki to a new home and GlassFish.org to a new infrastructure, presented at JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld and many other conferences, and started talking about GlassFish 3.2 and JavaEE 7.

I am very happy that we have maintained our core principles during the transition: transparency, communication, open source, great community support and production-ready deliverables. Extra thanks to AdamL, SteveH, MikeL, JustinK and many other "Oracle Classic" folks in helping the "Sun Legacy" GlassFish folks settle down.

Have fun, and take good care of GlassFish! And stay in touch; you can reach me at my personal email, or track me via @pelegri or pelegri.wordpress.com.

Eduardo, congratulations on your change and good luck for the future. It was a pleasure working with you in the early days of Glassfish and OSS at Sun.

You pushed through a great amount of work during those years with Sun, all of which have benefited many and changed the industry. Everyone in tech owes you a big debt of thanks.

Also, congratulations on building a great home for GlassFish with the Oracle team. Best of luck.
